Leo is a student on the Peer Supporter and Wellbeing Programme from Beyond Prison
At first, I was sceptical about the Peer Mentoring & Wellbeing Programme but after a couple of sessions, I knew what it was doing for me.
The course facilitator was very welcoming, positive and tough, but fair. I am a changed man after completing the programme.
After my release I am now planning to use the skills I have gained from the programme to help young adults to avoid taking the wrong path, like I did. I would like to pass on the lessons that I have learned. I am motivated and optimistic about my future.
I have learnt a lot from the modules – many skills to help me in life and how to respect people’s thoughts, emotions, and problems.
